Space Shuttle-like Craft and Buildings on Pluto’s largest moon Charon?

Did New Horizons photographed a shuttle-like spacecraft and buildings on Pluto’s largest moon Charon that make up a base of unknown origin?

NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft has returned the best color and the highest resolution images yet of Pluto’s largest moon, Charon – and these pictures show a surprisingly complex and violent history.

At half the diameter of Pluto, Charon is the largest satellite relative to its planet in the solar system. Many New Horizons scientists expected Charon to be a monotonous, crater-battered world; instead, they’re finding a landscape covered with mountains, canyons, landslides, surface-color variations and more.

“We thought the probability of seeing such interesting features on this satellite of a world at the far edge of our solar system was low,” said Ross Beyer, an affiliate of the New Horizons Geology, Geophysics and Imaging (GGI) team from the SETI Institute and NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California, “but I couldn't be more delighted with what we see."



High-resolution images of the Pluto-facing hemisphere of Charon, taken by New Horizons as the spacecraft sped through the Pluto system on July 14 and transmitted to Earth on Sept. 21, reveal details of a belt of fractures and canyons just north of the moon’s equator. This great canyon system stretches more than 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) across the entire face of Charon and likely around onto Charon’s far side. Four times as long as the Grand Canyon, and twice as deep in places, these faults and canyons indicate a titanic geological upheaval in Charon’s past.

“It looks like the entire crust of Charon has been split open,” said John Spencer, deputy lead for GGI at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado. “With respect to its size relative to Charon, this feature is much like the vast Valles Marineris canyon system on Mars.”

One possibility for the smooth surface is a kind of cold volcanic activity, called cryovolcanism. “The team is discussing the possibility that an internal water ocean could have frozen long ago, and the resulting volume change could have led to Charon cracking open, allowing water-based lavas to reach the surface at that time,” said Paul Schenk, a New Horizons team member from the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston.

The New Horizons spacecraft is currently 3.1 billion miles (5 billion kilometers) from Earth, with all systems healthy and operating normally.

Images from NASA's New Horizons spacecraft were used to create the flyover video below of Pluto's largest moon, Charon.

The “flight” starts with the informally named Mordor (dark) region near Charon’s north pole. The camera then moves south to a vast chasm, descending from 1,100 miles (1,800 kilometers) to just 40 miles (60 kilometers) above the surface to fly through the canyon system.

From there it’s a turn to the south to view the plains and "moat mountain," informally named Kubrick Mons, a prominent peak surrounded by a topographic depression.

Flying Saucer becomes visible over Zagreb, Croatia during thunderstorm

On June 16, 2019 during a thunderstorm over Zagreb, Croatia a huge UFO can be seen in the middle of the thunderstorm.


The photographer who submitted the images to Mufon talks about a pyramid-like object, but after enlarging the object it appears to be a clear flying saucer type UFO.


Photographer: I saw something strange in the sky under clouds...pyramid like object was standing there in the moment when thunder strike.

Massive UFO appears above ancient Ley-line in London, UK

In June 2019, UFO Researcher Miller captured from the 5th floor roof top balcony with his Ipad at 10.27 several images of the sky in all directions.

After reviewing the images, Miller noticed in one of a the images a huge UFO in the cloud formation.


In the second image the UFO is no longer visible; instead we see that a strange triangle has appeared between the clouds.

Since Miller stated that the location is situated on an ancient Ley-line crossing the magnetic world grid is it quite possible that the UFO probably piloted by extraterrestrials has used the invisible powers and energy coming from the Ley-lines for navigation.

Mysterious force of nature known as Ley-lines, invisible geometric alignments that ran across ancient landscapes, connecting both natural and sacred prehistoric structures such as ancient monuments, stone circles and megaliths together.

All Ley-lines run over the electromagnetic fields of the earth and lead to the planetary Grid.

How did that deer ended up on top a power pole?

Conservation worker and C2C listener Bruce shared a bizarre photo on CoastToCoast Facebook page of a deer that somehow wound up atop a power pole in a rural area somewhere in the US northeast.


According to Bruce, the most likely explanation for how the deer wound up there is that it was hit by a train, since there are train tracks several yards away.

However, he notes, "the deer would have to have traveled in the air approximately 45 feet (across) to the pole and reach a height of approximately 22 feet (up) to reach the top of the pole."

But being hit by a train seems unlikely, that kind of impact would have made the picture to gruesome however the deer shows no signs of external wounds.


Could it be that a large and strong bird like an eagle or something like the legendary creature the so-called thunderbird must have tried carrying it and dropped it because too heavy or maybe the deer has fallen victim to a failed alien abduction?

The question remains, how did the deer ended…

UFO hidden in cloud caught on camera over Spain

On August 9, 2019 a strange cloud-like object has been filmed in Spain.


Maybe it is just a cloud in front of the sunrise, but the strange thing is that it is the only cloud, a flying saucer -shaped cloud, in a blue sky.

Could it be a cloaked craft?
